Low level aerial photographs in Costa Rica
Camera platform – We have chosen remote control electric multi rotor lifters for our aircraft. The multi rotor can remain airborne for approximately ten minutes (depending on the camera payload). More airborne time is achieved with extra charged batteries. The multi rotors are equipped with a vibration damped camera platform that is stabilized with two gyroscopes. Camera angel and direction is controlled from the ground station or radio.
